VIP Conference Day 2 @ 09:00

Dry the beloved country – Why a New Paradigm of Water Management is Needed

  •     Day Zero has shown that current forecasting is no longer accurate under conditions of climate change
  •     Day Zero is the logical outcome of a Paradigm of Scarcity
  •     The Paradigm of Scarcity is based on managed water as a finite and therefore scarce resource  
  •     In reality water is an infinitely renewable resource because it’s a flux, not a stock 
  •     Therefore a New Paradigm of Abundance is needed to restore confidence, create jobs and grow the economy
